According to Mexican newspaper El Economista, Mexico's Impulsora Latinoamericana de Energia Renovable (ILER), a company formed by Spain's Grupo APIA XXI and Mexico's Grupo P.I. MABE, has completed the construction of the 66 MW Pier II wind farm in Esperanza, in the state of Puebla.
The project has been developed by ILER and its partner, Spain's Iberdrola, who have invested US$125 million in the project.
The asset, which started construction in August 2014, includes 33 wind turbines on land leased from rural communities for 30 years.
Overall, Pier II has the capacity to supply 25,000 homes. Gilberto Marin Quintero, chairman of ILER, said that until now, 12 MW of the capacity has been reserved for 14 firms in the states of Puebla, Veracruz and Jalisco.
ILER is planning to develop two other wind farms of 150 MW each.
